No Frills Mass Blast

Concentration Curls 4 x 10,8,6,15.
Squats 5 x 10,8,6-8,5,6,15.
Bench Press 5 x 10,8,6-8,5,6,15.
Dumbbell Rows 4 x 10,8,6,15.
Presses 4 x 10,8,6,15.
Two-arm Dumbbell Extensions 4 x 10,8,6,15.
Calf Raises 4 x 15-20.
Crunches 1 x 30-50.

Use this program three times a week on alternate days.

On the heavier exercises squats, bench presses and overhead presses, rest about two minutes between sets.

Try to complete the workout in less than 90 minutes.

When you can do two more reps on your heavy (6 rep) set, increase the poundage on each set. On the squats and the bench presses try and add one additional rep on the pump set at each workout until you reach 20. Keep pushing your poundages as often as possible, but always use strict form.
Stay on this program for 6 to 12 weeks.

Never miss a scheduled workout. Consistency is the key to continued improvement.

Gene Mozee, who trained under Farbotnik, recommends the follow diet:

Quote:

Get on a five to six meal a day diet, eating a protein-rich meal or snack every three hours or so. Consume at least one gram of protein for every pound of bodyweight, plus an additional 10% for growth. As your weight increases, increase your intake. Stick to about 30 calories per pound of bodyweight and keep the crap to a minimum.
So, if you weigh 150 pounds eat:

--4500 calories
--165 grams of protein (at minimum)

BtB, did you pull that from an old Musclemag? About Mid-90's.

I actually quite like that workout... orders a bit weird though.

Carl.

His reasoning for the curls was that everyone likes a nice bicep pump before they workout. I still remember this article from an old Musclemag circa 1997 or so.

It was from an article called "No Frills".

That's the one! It was also published in Musclemag in the 90's.

I found Gene on Facebook. I might approach him for an interview.
